KHP Seeks Information in Allen County Case
In the early morning hours of August 26, 2018, the Kansas Highway Patrol was contacted by the Allen County Sheriff’s Office, after a body was found on US-54 Highway. The Patrol’s Critical Highway Accident Response Team (CHART) was activated to assist in the investigation. 

Law enforcement’s investigation determined that at around 1:50 a.m., a pedestrian died in the eastbound lanes of US-54, at milepost 344.3, or approximately two miles west of Moran, Kansas. 

The deceased subject has been identified as Billy Lee Montgomery, white male, 26 years of age, of Springfield, Missouri. 

The investigation has determined that prior to Montgomery’s body being found, just after midnight, the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office had contact with Montgomery, who at that time, had been walking on US-169 Highway. 

The Kansas Highway Patrol is asking for anyone who may be familiar with Montgomery, or who may have seen him or anything suspicious in the area of US-54 or US-169 to please contact our investigators. The Patrol always appreciates any assistance offered by the public as we work our cases. Participation from the public has helped us tremendously in similar cases in the past.  If you or someone you know saw anything or has heard anything regarding this incident, please call KHP Trooper Brett Goins at 620-431-2100.
